For a decorated knife designer, inspiration strikes anywhere. Like in a dune buggy.
This original Ken Onion design is ideal for those looking for a reliable everyday carry with a little something extra. The gussets of a metal dune buggy frame add strength and reduce weight--the Gusset by Ken Onion is extremely lightweight and earns serious style points.
Ken Onion has designed and created hundreds of award-winning knives during his career in his Kaneohe, Hawaii shop, many of which break both style and performance barriers. The Gusset is no exception.
It's an everyday carry with a head-turning design--one that is also highly functional--the open areas in the handle make for an extremely lightweight carry and one that's simple to clean. The drop point blade features a titanium nitride finish and closes on a smooth IKBS ball bearing pivot system, and the stainless steel handle is gusseted, making it look seriously engineered.
Ken Onion is the type of designer that's familiar with the inter-section of style and performance, and the Gusset lands exactly there
